  • Hi,

    When you were converting the Blizzard.j and common,j files to Lua and added Emmy Annotation to each, did you have to do it all manually, or was there a macro or find/replace trick that you had used?

    Wow, I just tested it and the output is exactly the same - Emmy Annotation and all - that's absolutely amazing! I had no idea that this was even a thing, but I guess I'm not surprised since there was a lot of excitement surrounding Lua when it launched. I'll be sure to update my manual to offer that as an alternative for people who want to automate it. I had basically explained everything that that compiler would do, outside of the cJass portions.

    Nice! From what I understood, the compiler is not capable of converting vJASS constructs to Lua, which makes it unfeasible for many users. That's where your tutorial jumps in, so it should be a big help regardless of the existence of that compiler.
    Maybe Drake53's compiler offers better support vor vJass, I haven't taken a closer look.

    That one actually converts the war3map.j file from JASS to Lua, but it would bug if there is any non-GUI JASS in the script.

    cJass2Lua first transpiles JASS -and- vJass into cJass, then compiles that cJass into Lua. However, there are some vJass features, like "module", that then break and prevent the whole thing from running. Simple spells should convert without too much trouble. cJass didn't take off as much as it could've due to syntax and how it didn't support a number of vJass principles, but it does cover the basics.

    Then, I'll stay up all night hallucinating monsters from all that sugar and chocolate, and maybe liquor.

    That's a good way to have a creative kick-in.
    I think also the Beatles did this in their famous cookie-phase, didn't they?
    Just take a small overdose of chocolate chip delights and compose some number 1 songs.
    Maybe I'll name my band "Greatest Hits" and the first album "The Beatles", what do you think?
    Should be legally fine this way around.

    Your last album would be Diabetes - Complications.
    Cookie Monster? Is that you Paulioras?

    Must be a nice guy. Count me in on his next birthday party!
    Thanks for the bug report man. Infortunately, I don't have reforged. Could you help me debug it? I could probably point out some suspect parts of the code. I could try some modifications and have you test them with the editor. Are you on discord? I'm AGD#3885.

    Sure thing, I've sent you an invite (Wachtelbrei#4889). Which time zone are you located in? I'm in UTC+2.
    If you don't need me to be in the voice chat, feel free to text me you test requests ;)
    Hi-five to a fellow MtGer. : )

    You excited about the return to Theros?

    The thing is, in years past my involvement with MtG was pretty 1) singular & 2) from a distance. Like, I'd have the time to play at a Prerelease... And then basically not play again for months. I don't have *any* time to go to a game store & play paper magic, and nearly no one in my life currently plays either. So I'd enjoy looking at the cards, play my little game, and be done.

    Arena has provided me with something I haven't had in *years*; the ability to play MtG freely, basically whenever I want, in a variety of different ways with all sorts of different cards, *For Free*. I haven't spent a dime on it. It's actually kept me playing all through the release of the last set, Throne of Eldraine, and that's pretty amazing.

    Anyway, if you give it a try, send me a Friend Request (they *finally* got that working) @ "Khyrberos". : )

    Thanks for the recommendation! I've seen a lot of advertisement for Magic Arena lately, but never felt encouraged to try it out. Work and girlfriend have higher priority currently and I still have a backlog of Steam games that I own and need to play, not to speak of other hobbies such as mapping and a bit of casual Hearthstone. In the case I join Magic Arena in the future, I'd be glad to send you a friend request!

    Feel also free to add me on Blizzard launcher (Gurkensülze#2681) ;) Maybe we meet each other in Reforged once it gets released!

    Sure thing! Good luck in your endeavors. : )

    (Post) Thanks for the concern but I already solved my problem. Lets focus on your problem
    Yes, suggesting is right. Will you come as well tomorrow?
    btw, because of your WarCraft 3 Account name, are you german?
    Nah, I was just curious. I host your MTG map a lot and it's pretty fun. Was wondering if you're still working on it or if it died off.
    Ooh, thankyou for the message, only just got it, I will test it when I get some time ;)
